Product Description

About the Author

Nadine Abensur is one of the most original vegetarian food writers working today, and is the author of various bestselling Cranks cookbooks. Born in Morocco of French-Jewish parents, her international background is reflected in the global influences of her cuisine. After setting up her own vegetarian catering company (Culinary Arts, which soon acquired a famous clientele ranging from Paul and Linda McCartney to Annie Lennox), Nadine subsequently became Food Director of the Cranks restaurant group for 5 years. She now divides her time between London and Australia, where she runs cookery courses. Nadine writes for magazines in both countries, including BBC Good Food Magazine in the UK and Delicious in Australia.

Format: Hardcover
After her wonderfully accessible and inspiring Cranks books, Nadine goes for haute cuisine in Enjoy. Long lists of exotic vegetables, long cooking times and unobtainable ingredients make this a beautifully photographed but very unpractical vegetarian cookbook. There's a reason why this book's subtitle is `new veg with dash' and that's because to make anything from her repertoire of dishes you really will have to source vegetables you've never seen in a UK supermarket in your life (or alternatively, move to Australia where most of these foods are available in abundance).

The first chapter, Breakfast in Bed, starts innocently enough with eggs Florentine on potato rosti or the buttermilk pancakes with caramelised apples. But soon you get to breakfasts that require black rice, lemon myrtle and dried rosebuds. On the Barbecue, the next chapter, is the most accessible and will come in handy for summer grilling (there are recipes for tofu steaks, aubergine stacks with mozzarella, sweet potatoes with asparagus, corn on the cob, aubergines with halloumi, and a few appetising others). Then you come to Laidback Lunch, where the `new veg' begin to pop up formidably: sumac, green papaya, white asparagus, fresh lychees. When you come to Dinner Date the `new veg' appear incessantly: snake beans, kumquats, banana leaves, plum vinegar and kaitaifi pastry (not veg but certainly new to me).

The Cranks Bible is my favourite veggie cookbook of all time and I was hoping that Nadine Abensur would again aim at people who like to cook in the evening when they come home from work. Enjoy requires that you spend hours shopping and hours preparing. I'll keep this for dinner parties and order ingredients weeks ahead from the internet but other than that, this will sadly gather dust on my bookshelf.

I totally concur with Mr Reynolds. I adore this book for its simple, but imaginative and beautifully realised recipes, using the freshest ingredients. I have loved Nadine's work since the Crank days - the Cranks Bible is an inspiring cookbook too. She totally rewrites the rules on veggie cooking, in part I think because of the many influences - Middle-Eastern and Asian among them - but also because of her effortless style. I'm waiting on a new offering from Nadine: come on, Nadine, where's the lovely new book?!

This has been one of the most inspiring new cookbooks I have ever bought. I am not a vegetarian but in an attempt to cut down on our meat consumption I have had little difficulty in finding ideas for meals that banish any thought of needing meat. A love of spicy food helps, and some of the ingredients are hard to track down, but I have found myself returning to recipes from this book again and again,with no diminution of the enjoyment derived.It even has two recipes to inspire love of that most ugly of vegetables - celeriac... I can't recommend it highly enough - it has expanded our repertoire of exciting meals dramatically

How divine 10 Nov. 2006
By L. D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In a word - exquisite. This is modern vegetarian food for all. The recipes in this collection are all wonderful, though you do need to enjoy cooking as some require a little effort on the cook's part. There is a hint of mystique in all of Nadine's books and this, her latest is her best yet. Deep flavours, complex fragrances, new tastes - they are all here. You will NOT be dissappointed and every person you cook for will thank you. Food to die for!

Had borrowed this book from a friend and was sorry to have to give it back so pleased to have my own copy.The dishes are interesting with great flavour. Have tried a number of the recipes now and haven't found one I didn't like.
